Rescue organizations can serve more animals

This program is intended to assist in relieving some of the overwhelming demand for placement and homes in current foster and shelter programs while also benefitting individuals in the community by providing. Still in it's infancy, this program has been well received by the rescue and mental health community.

A related program seeks to increase volunteer and foster participation for all rescued.

Focus on Fostering

What is animal fostering and how does this help with overcrowding in shelters?

Rescues and shelters rely on the kindness of concerned community members to help with overcrowding in shelters and rescues generally only use fosters for all intakes. This reduces the number of animals living in crowded shelters.

Available foster homes are rare, and often community members do not fully understand what a tremendous service they can provide to the rescue and shelter animals in need.
